Les impacts de la loi du 30 juillet 2020 relative aux violences conjugales dans l’exercice professionnel en médecine générale de ville

Abstract : Violence has no minimum intensity, no voluntary physical or psychological injury can be tolerated. This problem is part of a global and multidisciplinary reflection, with as a central point, the social inequality between men and women of which the latter remain the main concerned. Thus, the fight against domestic violence is part of a societal choice. For several years, it has been regulated by severe laws, with heavy criminal penalties incurred by the perpetrators of voluntary violence. Because of the many actors involved in situations of domestic violence, it is difficult to think in a circular way, intended for a global and coherent approach.The law of July 30, 2020 was drafted in the context of an upsurge in domestic violence in France. It authorizes the waiver of medical secrecy by the health professional, even without the consent of the victim of conjugal violence, if the latter is associated with a psychological hold and imminent danger. The aim of this study is to collect the different opinions of the general practitioners interviewed concerning this law, and to highlight the existence or not of a change in practice. The recourse to legal information available to the general practitioners is the same as that of the general population - namely the media - and they have therefore not benefited from any information specific to their status as doctors. In the end, the majority of general practitioners were in favour of not making any radical changes to their care. However, they did mention the increase in their thoughts of reporting or at least questioning the existence of potential violence within the couple. The different health professionals mention a difficulty in estimating the existence or not of a psychological hold.
